The announcement of the sanction was given by Amazon itself which also confirmed that it will do appeal on the measure. According to Amazon: “The decision on how we show relevant advertising to customers is based on subjective and unprecedented interpretations of European privacy legislation and the proposed sanction is completely disproportionate even to such interpretations”
